Repairs have begun on the boat ramp loading dock at the Kukui‘ula Small Boat Harbor, officials announced Tuesday, Oct. 12.
Construction crews will remove the existing, damaged wooden loading dock and replace it, the Department of Land and Natural Resources stated in a press release Tuesday. The new dock will be made of an aluminum frame with plastic lumber fenders and fiberglass decking.
The boat launch ramp will remain open during construction except for two days. It will be closed for one day to pour concrete for a new abutment and pile caps: and then a second time for setting the new loading dock in place. Once dates are scheduled, the DLNR
Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation (DOBOR) Kaua‘i District staff will inform boaters.
The $292,292 contract was awarded to Sea Engineering Inc., with an estimated completion date of Nov. 5, 2021.
